DODGE CARAVAN KIDS
The Dodge Caravan Kids program is back and is celebrating its 10th anniversary season. The program will once again provide up to $500 in funding to qualifying novice teams. This year they have developed an on-line registration component which should ensure the process is more streamlined than in past seasons. Registration will open on Monday September 14, 2015 through Dodge Caravan Kids. All the details are in an attached information package.
Any questions in regards to the application process or the Dodge Caravan Kids sponsorship can be directed to email@example.com
CAMECO HOCKEY DAY IN SASKATCHEWAN
Cameco Hockey Day in Saskatchewan for 2015 was held in Carnduff and was a great success as over $85,000 was raised for their arena project in that community.
This next edition of Hockey Day in Saskatchewan will take place January 15th-17th, 2016 in Zone 5. As in years past there will be ample opportunity for all communities across the province to get involved by hosting your own special events and earn the opportunity to receive $1,000 for your local minor hockey association. All the information and details will be available on the Cameco Hockey Day in Saskatchewan website.

We are already in the planning stages for the 2016 Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame Induction Dinner which will take place in early July. An announcement on the host city will be coming soon, so please stay tuned.
With a new season set to begin we will continue to strive to provide everyone with all the latest news and updates on programs and events through our social media platforms. In addition we are preparing a number of promotions and contests to further develop and enhance our online relationship with each of our followers. Please make sure you give us a follow to learn more.
Over the course of the past season we worked with Halter Media to create some videos which will work as informational and educational tools for all. All the current videos are now posted on the Saskatchewan Hockey YouTube channel. Make sure you subscribe and stay tuned for more videos!
We are excited to be redesigning the SHA website. We are in the initial phases of the project with a target to have the new and improved site ready to launch later in 2015.
The goal of the new website is to ensure we provide better access and navigation to all SHA information, news and programs. In addition, we will launch a new and improved web store through the new website which will feature a larger variety of Saskatchewan Hockey merchandise for all ages.
